*Smacks head*

Australian Man Gunned Down in Driveway by Killer Robot

An 81-year-old Australian man has shot himself dead with an elaborate suicide robot built using plans he downloaded from the Internet.

“The Gold Coast man, who lived alone, left notes of his plans and thoughts as he struggled to come to terms with demands by interstate relatives that he move out of his home and into care.

He spent hours searching the Internet for a way to kill himself, downloaded what he needed and then built a complex machine that would remotely fire a gun.

He set the device up in his driveway about 7 a.m. Wednesday, placed himself in front of it and set it in motion.

His notes explained that he chose the driveway as he knew there were tradesmen working next door who would find his body. The plan worked as the workmen heard the gunshots and ran to investigate.

The machine was attached to a .22 semi-automatic pistol loaded with four bullets.

It was able to fire multiple shots into the man’s head after he activated it.”

HELLO!! Have we learned nothing from Terminator, Terminator 2, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, I, Robot, and Short Circuit? Building killer robots is never a good idea! This is how we end up battling our laptops and palm pilots as they try to kill us with nuclear warheads.
